There are pros and cons to choosing between a custom patio and deck. The former is an outdoor space placed directly on the ground, while the latter tends to feature some type of support system to hold up the addition. Either way, both help increase your outdoor space, offer an area to gather with family or friends, and help you relax under the New Jersey sun or stars. Magnolia Home Remodeling offers custom patios as well as decks. Here are a few things to think about before you consider getting one for your home.
Remodel or new?
A custom patio or deck for your New Jersey home is an option, as is availing of the deck remodeling services provided by Magnolia Home Remodeling. The addition of a new deck can add both style as well as function to your home, but deck remodeling also has an advantage in terms of costs, so it is important to have a conversation about how your decision can affect you financially as well as change the look of your home. Your custom patio or deck should suit the architecture of your home as well as the function you desire.
Consider composite decking
Simply put, composite decking offers the natural beauty of wood without the maintenance. It looks and feels like wood while offering performance benefits that go far beyond what the real thing can give you. Maintenance-free products are great because they are durable and serve their purpose without a fuss. They don’t need to be painted, stained or treated with a protective coating. Also, unlike wood, composite materials for decks do not shrink, rot, warp, crack or harbor insects, so you never have to worry about replacing damaged boards. They don’t splinter either, and require no toxic chemical preservatives, making them a safe choice for families with children and pets.
If you have a custom patio or deck in mind, this is a great eco-friendly choice, with high recycled content that creates sustainability. Most importantly, it is visually harder than ever to distinguish between composite decking and traditional wood decking.
